To protect and advance all purebred dogs, encourage sportsmanlike competition at AKC sanctioned dog events, and provide educational activities and exhibitions concerning dog ownership, care, training and recreation.
The RCKC held its first show outside of Sioux Park. There were 250 entries that year, which thrilled and motivated us for upcoming events. The following year we moved to the old auditorium where the Dahl Fine Arts Center is now located. Today, our shows are held in the Rushmore Plaza Arena (The Monument). In 2009, we had 1,063 dogs entered in our 90th, 91st, 92nd, & 93rd all breed shows. Currently, RCKC is comprised of approximately 80 members.
